  1. iOS 11 Full Drag and Drop Compatibility

    Gives OneNote (and hopefully any other Office365 applications) the ability to drag and drop files, images, and text from other apps on iOS 11 for the iPad.

    • STRAIGHT LINE FEATURE

      Please would you allow us to draw straight lines - just as you would in notability (your competitor) - DRAWING STRAIGHT LINES IS ESSENTIAL AND IS SUCH A SIMPLE FEATURE TO IMPLEMENT INTO THE SOFTWARE OF THIS APP - THIS FEATURE IS SEVERELY LACKING ON THE IPAD

      • Please, please add handwriting conversion to text for OneNote on the iPad Pro. I love the iPad Pro, but really need this conversion feature.

        Please, please add handwriting conversion to text for OneNote on the iPad Pro. I love the iPad Pro, but really need this conversion feature. The iPad Pro is superior to the Surface Pro, but I will need to switch for that feature if it isn't added for iPad. I just don't understand why it was removed in the first place. What was the point?

        • Export from iPad as pdf

          Please can you mak a function that allows users to export notebooks to PDF using OneNote for iPad.
          Is there any existing workaround to export whole notebooks as a pdf from Notebook?

          • iPad Pro 10.5'', iOS 11 compatibility for OneNote

            Since I switched to a new iPad Pro 10.5’ OneNote is not displaying any notes, neither new ones nor existing ones, even though it’s fully synchronized. I am running the latest version of both OneNote and iOS 11. I tested this with my existing account, created a new account, rebooted iOS, reinstalled OneNote, took the smart keyboard on and off - the problem is persistent. The page previews and the navigation through the app work fine, I can even see writing appearing in the preview, when I type in the blank note screen. Zooming in and out, switching orientation, etc.…

            • Record audio and write at the same time.

              Much like the desktop version the iPad should be able to record audio while doing other tasks, this way you can record your lectures and take notes, on top of this it would be nice to be able to play back the lecture by selecting parts of your notes. Why is the iPad version so behind the desktop version.

              • Integrate Outlook Task flags into OneNote iPad App

                I use OneNote for note taking with my iPad and Apple Pencil.
                In a meeting I would like to tag something I have written as a task that I can later view in Outlook. I can do this when I get back to my computer, but this is inefficient. My productivity would further boosted if I could simply tag the item on my iPad while I am taking notes.

                Please include this feature moving forward.

                • Default pen size

                  Leave the size of pen selected instead of defaulting back to the midsize whenever OneNote is restarted. The color is retained, and the size should be, too.

                  • Full support for Apple Pencil

                    Hi there, I´m almost 100% sure somebody else already suggested that, but here I go: when will you guys release Onenote with full support to handwriting written with Apple Pencil and have the notes fully indexed for future searchs?

                      • Bring back the color wheel!!

                        The new update makes it cumbersome to choose a pen or highlighter of different color and thickness. You can’t even tell the difference in thicknesses by looking at them! The previous Draw format at the top was much better for note taking. Bring back the color wheel and pen/highlighter format!!

                        • Make cmd-. shortcut work on iOS 11

                          Charianne Per from Microsoft has suggested that I post this here after not being able to help me solve it...

                          For myself and other users, the cmd-. shortcut to insert a bullet point on an iPad with attached keyboard has stopped working with iOS 11. It worked with iOS 10, and all other shortcuts continue to work with iOS 11.

                          For details see https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_onenote-mso_imobile-mso_mobapps/onenote-for-ipad-keyboard-shortcut-for-bullet/e9ef5868-2d70-4b55-a277-52af4e617f91?messageId=c994bd9d-59bf-4e8a-809c-8a6172d67c1c

                            My OneNote on my iPad keeps freezing and crashing, like every 5 mins. It is getting ridiculous. This has never happened until recently.

                            • ink to text

                              Please bring out an ink to text feature so we can convert our notes into a typed document if needed. Ink to text for mathematical equations would be amazing as well although that is a little more complex to do. However, the ink to text is almost mandatory at this point as all other microsoft devices such as the surface pro have this... One note should be the same through out all platforms.

                              • Setting page size to A4 pages

                                Hi!

                                I've been enjoying the OneNote app on my iPad so much. However, I am not able to use it to write my homework that I need to print out later, since the PDF shrinks all the contents into one page, which may make my writings unreadable. I wonder if you can add the option of setting page sizes, so that we can print the notes out when needed?

                                Thanks!

                                  In the newest Update somehow the support for Pencil by 53 is gone. I started using OneNote because of the great implemention of the 53 sdk.
                                  Please bring back the support for third party pencils

                                    • Enable automatic drawing for OneNote on iPad with Apple Pencil

                                      On Word and Excel on the iPad where it isn't that useful (for my use case, anyway), there is an option in the Settings app to toggle on or off always inking with the pencil. I turned that off in both because in those apps 99% of the time if I'm using the Pencil it's to navigate.

                                      But in OneNote, where I use the pencil to take notes, I always have to manually go in and turn on drawing for the Pencil. I would love for it to just start auto inking when the pencil is used like Word and…

                                      • Implement "Share" Extension Support

                                        Implement proper support for the iOS "Share" Extensions to SEND data from OneNote to other apps.

                                        This shortcoming was really brought home to me yesterday when I tried to get some text from OneNote into Microsoft Offline Translation - and there was no means to do it!!

                                        But it's not just OneNote->Microsoft Translation but from OneNote to all sorts of other apps (including but not limited to Microsoft apps).

                                        And it's really a very straightforward implementation. Plenty of space in the e.g. top bar.

                                        • Really listen to our requests

                                          You always say: we do listen to you. But for many years you do not implement the ink to text function in OneNote as in the desktop version. And still you give no answers why you do not implement it.
